On one very nice morning recently, I hied myself to the Preserve at Spruce Creek Golf Club. The gentleman working in the pro shop told me I'd be playing with a Lou Schroeder. Lo, and behold, Lou Schroeder was standing at the counter so we exchanged introductions and went off to start our round. Mr. Schroeder suggested I put my bags on his golf cart which was parked close by. As I did so, I saw a large sign in front of his golf cart which read: Reserved for Club Champion.
Uh, oh! I knew I was in trouble. Club champion? OMG!
But, Lou turned out to be a very fine person and we had a great time on the course. I won't mention my score for it was less than impressive, but he ended the round just two over par! That is phenomenal by any standard!
Lou is known as Captain Schroeder for he has owned a marine services business in the Palm Beach area for many years and one of his services includes yacht sitting. He is now more or less retired and living in the Ocala area.
Perhaps we'll run into each other again some time. If that happens I'm gonna take notes!
